Today’s video of the day comes from NYC art punks Gustaf. A relentlessly earwormy instant obsession, ‘Mine’ is all about having a false sense of entitlement. These buzzy cool kids just signed to Royal Mountain Records, so we hope to hear more of this sort of nonsense please.
Vocalist Lydia Gammill explains:
“This song is about having a false sense of entitlement. Someone who feels attacked or like they’re being pushed out of their own world and not getting the credit they deserve. Someone with a delusional sense of self whose anger and frustration is humorous like the superintendent in a college frat movie. The opening lines make it seem like the narrator is being criticizing by someone else and they’re retaliation is like ‘you’ve got to be kidding me, you can’t say that about me! I invented water you punk!’ … sort of. “
